Appendix 21 Guidelines for Extended Interval between Surveys in Dry-Dock - Extended
Dry-docking (EDD) Scheme

1 General requirements
1.1 Introduction
1.1.1 The intervals between inspections of the outside of the ship's bottom are specified in
SOLAS, IACS Regulations and CCS Rules and require a minimum of two inspections to be
carried out during the 5 year validity period of the Safety Construction Certificate/Special Survey
period. SOLAS Regulation I/10(v) only requires a minimum of two inspections of the outside of
the ships bottom and does not specify a ship must be dry-docked out of the water.
1.1.2 IMO Resolution A.1053(27) as amended, Survey guidelines for the harmonized system of
survey and certification, requires that inspections of the outside of the ships bottom should
normally be carried out with the ship in a dry-dock. However, it also provides that Administrations
may give consideration to alternate inspections being carried out with the ship afloat.
1.1.3 This Guidelines recommends the acceptance procedure for pilot schemes which extend the
interval between surveys in dry-dock. Ships eligible for the Extended Dry-Docking (EDD) scheme
are to meet the provisions and conditions described in this Guidelines.
1.1.4 Qualifying ships may be permitted to carry out two consecutive in-water surveys, subject
to the conditions described in this Guidelines. A minimum of two inspections of the outside of the
ships bottom is to be carried out during the statutory renewal period/special survey period of five
years and the intervals between any two inspections are not to exceed 36 months.
1.1.5 Pilot schemes which extend the interval between out of water dry-docking surveys are
normally tripartite projects between the Owner, Flag Administration and CCS. Acceptance into
such a Pilot scheme is subject to the formal written agreement with the ships Flag Administration
including any additional specific Flag Administration requirements.

1.2 Application
1.2.1 Owners/Managers requesting a ship be considered for the EDD scheme, are to apply to
CCS in writing confirming and describing compliance with the requirements and conditions
specified in this Guidelines.
1.2.2 Upon the Owners request, the extended interval for each ship will be considered on a case
by case basis by CCS. CCS may assist in forwarding the Owners application to the Flag
Administration.
1.2.3 The following ships and ship types are not eligible for the extended dry-docking scheme
described in this Guidelines:
- passenger ships;
- ships subject to the Enhanced Survey Program (ESP);
- ships subject to requirements of sections 5 and 16 of Chapter 5 of this PART;
- ships fitted with propulsion thrusters;
- ships where the propeller connection to the shaft is by means of a keyed taper;
- High Speed Craft (HSC).
1.2.4 The dry-docking scheme will operate, based upon the ships age when entering the scheme.
For ships already in service, the extended dry-docking scheme may be implemented at any time
until a ship reaches 10 years of age. (Namely that once a ship reaches 10 years of age, inspections
of the outside of the ships bottom must be carried out in dry-dock during the 10 year special
survey period.)

6/24
1.2.5 No extensions are to be granted for the dry-docking required at the end of each extended
dry docking period.

1.3 Information to be submitted by the owner
1.3.1 Prior to acceptance into an EDD scheme, the owner is to submit the following information:
(1) provisions for carrying out maintenance required on electric/electronic sensors e.g.
Echo-sounder, Doppler-Log, Speedlog (propeller speedlog or backpressure speedlog), seawater
temperature gauges, electronic draught reading, etc.;
(2) provisions for maintaining the draft marks fore, aft and midships as well as loadline marks
(painted and welded figures) and all other required hull markings;
(3) maintenance required of thrusters and stabilisers, if fitted, and provision for carrying out
surveys or maintenance or as required by the surveyor;
(4) service experience to-date with hull coating system covered by manufacturer's guarantee that
the underwater coatings used are designed to last for the extended period since the coating is to
remain effective for the extended dry docking period;
(5) impressed cathodic protection system or provisions for renewal of external hull sacrificial
anodes in the afloat condition.

1.4 Preparatory reviews by CCS
1.4.1 CCS is to carry out the following reviews prior to accepting a ship into an EDD scheme:
(1) satisfactory review of the items submitted by the owner as required in 1.3 above;
(2) review of ships history with particular attention to any previous findings affecting the
underwater body.

1.5 Arrangements
1.5.1 Prior to acceptance into an EDD scheme, ships enrolled an extended dry-docking interval
scheme are to comply with the following provisions:
(1) The ship is to comply with the In-Water Survey provisions in accordance with the
corresponding requirements of CCS.
(2) Protective coating in double bottom/double side ballast tanks, void spaces and all other spaces
adjacent to the shell is to be maintained in GOOD condition.
(3) The shafting arrangement is to fulfil the applicable CCSs requirements for Tailshaft Condition
Monitoring Survey Arrangement. Namely that the ship is to be assigned with SCM class notation.
(4) Hull maintenance scheme to be implemented in accordance with ISM requirements.

2 Survey requirements
2.1 In-Water Survey Requirements
2.1.1 The In-Water Survey is to be carried out in accordance with the requirements of 5.2.3,
section 2 and section 11, Chapter 5 of this PART.
2.1.2 An in-water survey plan is to be submitted to CCS for review in advance of the survey and
should include the following:
(1) scheduled time and location for survey;
(2) name of approved diving company;
(3) means for cleaning of the hull below waterline;
(4) means of access for examination of sea chests, sea valves and box coolers;
(5) provisions for determining the condition of anchoring equipment, ranging of anchor chain
cables and examination of the chain lockers when due for survey and/or as required by the
surveyor;
(6) provisions for surveying and maintaining sea connections including thickness measurements of
sea chests;
(7) results of inspections by the Owners personnel of double bottom/double side ballast tanks
(during the last 3 years) and other spaces adjacent to the shell with reference to structural
deterioration in general, leakages in tank boundaries and piping and condition of the protective
coating;
(8) conditions for internal examination of double bottom/double side ballast tanks (e.g.,
information regarding tank cleaning, gas freeing, ventilation, lighting, etc.).
2.1.3 Prior to commencement of the in-water survey, a survey planning meeting is to be held

7/24
between the attending surveyor(s), the owners representative in attendance, the diving company
and the master of the ship or an appropriate representative appointed by the owner for the purpose
of ascertaining that all the arrangements envisaged in the survey plan are in place, so as to ensure
the safe and efficient conduct of the survey work to be carried out.
2.1.4 A comprehensive report of findings, gaugings, clearances and any work undertaken,
including recordings of representative CCTV images, must be submitted by the ship owner to all
involved parties.

2.2 Special survey/statutory renewal requirements
2.2.1 It should be noted that the periodicity of the shipss Special Survey and Statutory Renewal
Surveys will not change, therefore provision must be made for carrying out all such surveys and
any repairs afloat, where not dry-docking.

2.3 Survey findings
2.3.1 If the In-Water Survey reveals damage, deterioration or other conditions that requires early
attention, the surveyor may require that the ship be dry-docked in order that a detailed survey can
be undertaken and necessary repairs carried out.
2.3.2 If temporary repairs carried out to any underwater parts are considered acceptable these
must be made permanent within a due date decided by the surveyor.
2.3.3 The owner is to request CCS to perform a survey in dry-dock in any event or circumstance
in the operation of the ship which could have led to underwater damages or deterioration in the
crews knowledge or opinion.
2.3.4 If the coating condition in double bottom/double side ballast tanks, void spaces and dry
spaces is found in less than GOOD condition, the owner is to restore the coating to GOOD.

3 Termination of scheme
3.1 Termination of EDD scheme
3.1.1 The dry-docking survey required for the special survey at 15 years of age is to be carried
out in a dry-dock. All ships in an EDD scheme are to be dis-enrolled once the ship reaches 15
years of age.
3.1.2 The Extended Dry-docking Scheme will be terminated in cases of change of the ships
owner, management or Flag Administration.
3.1.3 CCS may dis-enroll a ship from an EDD scheme at any time should it be found that the
conditions for maintaining this extended dry-dock scheme are not fulfilled anymore.
3.1.4 Once the conditions for the scheme are no longer present, the ship will return to the normal
docking interval and any due dock survey is to be carried out by the due date.

: Gauged thickness, in mm, on one item, i.e average thickness on one
item using the various measurements taken on this same item during
periodical ships in service surveys.
1. Local strength criteria
1.1 Application
1.1.1
The items to be considered for the local strength criteria are those defined in UR Z10.2
for single side skin bulk carriers and UR Z10.5 for double side skin bulk carriers.

23/24
1.2 Renewal thickness for corrosion other than local corrosion
1.2.1
For each item, steel renewal is required when the gauged thickness t
gauged
is less than the
renewal thickness, as specified in the following formula:
t
gauged

<
t
renewal,
Where the gauged thickness t
gauged
is such as:
t
renewal
< t
gauged
< (t
renewal
+ t
reserve
)
coating applied in accordance with the coating manufacturers requirements or annual
gauging may be adopted as an alternative to the steel renewal. The coating is to be
maintained in good condition.
1.3 Renewal thickness for local corrosion
1.3.1
If pitting intensity in an area where coating is required, according to Ch 3, Sec 5, is
higher than 15% (see Fig 1), thickness measurements are to be performed to check the
extent of pitting corrosion. The 15% is based on pitting or grooving on only one side of
a plate.
In cases where pitting is exceeding 15%, as defined above, an area of 300 mm or more,
at the most pitted part of the plate, is to be cleaned to bare metal and the thickness is to
be measured in way of the five deepest pits within the cleaned area. The least thickness
measured in way of any of these pits is to be taken as the thickness to be recorded.
The minimum remaining thickness in pits, grooves or other local areas as defined in Ch
13, Sec 1, [1.2.1] is to be greater than:
75% of the as-built thickness, in the frame and end brackets webs and flanges
70% of the as-built thickness, in the side shell, hopper tank and topside tank plating
attached to the each side frame, over a width up to 30 mm from each side of it,
without being greater than t
renewal
.

1.4 Global strength criteria
1.4.1 Items for the global strength criteria
The items to be considered for the global strength criteria are those of the deck zone, the
bottom zone and the neutral axis zone, as defined in Ch 13, Sec 1, [1.2].
1.4.2 Renewal thickness
The global strength criteria is defined by the assessment of the bottom zone, deck zone
and neutral axis zone, as detailed below.
a) bottom zone and deck zone:
The current hull girder section modulus determined with the thickness measurements is
not to be less than 90% of the section modulus calculated according to Ch 5, Sec 1 with
the gross offered thicknesses.
Alternatively, the current sectional areas of the bottom zone and of the deck zone which
are the sum of the gauged items area of the considered zones, are not to be less than
90% of the sectional area of the corresponding zones determined with the gross offered
thicknesses.
b) neutral axis zone:
The current sectional area of the neutral axis zone, which is the sum of the gauged
platings area of this zone, is not to be less than 85% of the gross offered sectional area
of the neutral axis zone.
If the actual wastage of all items, of a given transverse section, which contribute to the
hull girder strength is less than 10% for the deck and bottom zones and 15% for the
neutral axis zone, the global strength criteria of this transverse section is automatically
satisfied and its checking is no more required.
